The Key to the Self: Understanding Yourself Through Depth Psychological Astrology


Our fate is NOT written in the stars, as the popular form of interpreting horoscopes would like us to believe. Instead, a serious approach to astrology describes an individual's special dispositions and developmental possibilities that can be lived out in entirely different ways. The experienced Jungian analyst and astrologist Marianne Meister connects this reputable astrological approach with the theories of C.G. Jung's Analytical Psychology. In her Depth Psychological Astrology, she works out the various basic patterns of the personality and makes it possible for readers to discover their own inclinations, needs, and potential. This book shows that the experiential knowledge from astrology and depth psychology can be used like a roadmap as important help in orientation on the path of life.
